What is whistleblowing?

In order to succeed with a whistleblowing claim it has to be shown that a 'protected disclosure' has been made.

A 'protected disclosure' is a disclosure of information (for example to an employer) which the worker reasonably believes is made in the public interest and tends to show any of the following:

  • a criminal offence
  • failing to comply with a legal obligation
  • miscarriages of justice
  • endangerment of health or safety
  • damage to the environment
  • a deliberate concealment of any of the above

Remedy for whistleblowing

All workers can bring a claim for whistleblowing detriment but only employees can bring a claim for automatic unfair dismissal.

If an employee can show that the principal reason for their dismissal is the protected disclosure, they will be deemed to have been automatically unfairly dismissed.

A worker will succeed in a whistleblowing detriment claim if they can show that they have been subjected to a detriment because they made a protected disclosure. A detriment can include for example being overlooked for promotion or a bonus, bullying and harassment or being targeted for poor performance. There is no length of service which is required to be eligible to make a claim
